If you created the cms static block like "my_block_id", Use the below code:

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('my_block_id')->toHtml(); ?> 

Use this code to call cms block in phtml file:

<?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('block-id-here')->toHtml()?>

You can also do it like this:

    <reference name="root">
        <block type="cms/block" name="block.name">
            <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>cms_block_id_</block_id></action>

In your phtml you put this where you want to display it:

<?php echo $this->getBlockHtml('block.name') ?>

Well this question answered many times in this forum, I dont know why you ask same question again,

but you can try below things.

if your template(PHTML)'s block class extends mage_core_block_template at some where then you can easily use below code

 <?php echo $this->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('Your_CMS_Block_Identifier')->toHtml(); ?>

IF your Templeate's block class does not extends mage_core_block_template at some point then you can try below code in your phtml file

 <?php echo Mage::app()->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setBlockId('Your_CMS_Block_Identifier')->toHtml(); ? 
  • Is there any way to fetch the cms block using the "ID" not the identifier ? – Anish Karim Oct 4 '18 at 11:29

    @AnishKarim try this <?php echo Mage::app()->getLayout()->createBlock('cms/block')->setId('Your_CMS_Block_Id')->toHtml(); ? – Murtuza Zabuawala Oct 4 '18 at 12:38
